Kyocera Hydro Vibe from Sprint getting the Android 4.4 update

Kyocera Hydro Vibe

The Kyocera Hydro Vibe smartphone from Sprint has started receiving the Android 4.4 update. The update also brings the WiFi calling feature to the smartphone, so there’s more than just visual changes on board with this update. The smartphone was launched with Android 4.3 back in May, but it’s good to see the manufacturer as well as the carrier rolling out the update now. There’s no word on how big the update file is, but it seems like it’s going to be pretty large considering that the device is switching over from Android 4.3.

Among the obvious changes, the update also comes with a fix for the camera’s autofocus and some other performance enhancements. Bear in mind that you might lose root access after flashing the update. So if your smartphone is rooted, it’s probably safe to wait for a custom ROM or unroot the device.

As is usually the nature of these updates, not all devices might see it at once, so be patient if you don’t see it on your smartphone. In the meanwhile, try downloading the update manually by heading over to the settings.

  1. this update is ruining my phone. certain apps will not work now, various quirks, and my battery life(which used to be pretty good) is now a JOKE! i’m lucky to make it out of work with any life left. i can’t even use my phone at work and i make sure that all apps are killed from settings. i like what i see but it’s totally not worth what i’ve lost. p.s. have a samsung evo 32g sim card too plus i have only downloaded a few apps so i doubt storage is a problem. HELP!
